When your husband tells you that he wants to upgrade your closet, you do not argue with him. Our closet was a pretty nice standard walk-in closet with typical builder-grade wire racks. We probably could have done a better job keeping it organized, but honestly, to keep some things organized, you need the right tools. You do have to get rid of the things you do not use, but we really did that when we moved and it still was not working for us. Our goal was to add more hanging storage, shoe storage as well as have a place for sweaters and other seasonal clothing items. We saw that Closets by Design was having some good deals in January so we contacted them for an initial design and quote. They were great to work with and we are so pleased with how it turned out.
I am embarrassed to show you the 'before' situation, but this is real life folks.
We painted the closet the same color as our bathroom which is Olympus White - Sherwin Williams. It is hard to get good pictures of a closet with no natural light, but this will at least give you an idea. There are so many different options, but we chose the most basic design.
I decided to add a small ottoman for storage and to stand on to reach the upper shelf. It is a great place to store my handbags.
I know it sounds crazy, but when my home is organized, I feel more at ease. I know for sure it will not always be completely organized, but this small improvement has made such a huge difference!
